Home Improvement / July 30, 2020
Whether you are looking to sell your house now or in the future, you are probably wondering how you can add value to your home. When you think about how you can add home value, you might be thinking of remodels like the ones you see on TV. But, there may be some simpler ways to add more value rather than knocking out walls. Here’s what you can do to get started.
Touch Up the Paint
Neutral-colored paint is a great way to freshen up your house. Focus first on any rooms that have very bright or colorful paint. Shades of whites, grays, and beiges are good choices.
Fix the Leaking Faucet
Make sure all of your appliances are in decent shape and in good working order. This includes fixing any leaking faucets. This may not be as difficult as it sounds!
Check the Plumbing
Is there water damage on your floor? If there is, and it is near toilets or sinks it might be time to dig into the plumbing. Updates to the plumbing will save you money on damages now and in the event you’re selling soon you can recoup from the changes.
Tackle the Squeaky Doors
You shouldn’t have to worry about a squeaking door being an annoyance to you or potential buyers. Check the hinges, this isn’t often an expensive fit!
Clean the Gutters
Gutters usually needed cleaned two times a year at a minimum. If you’ve been stretching the visits to the roof or can’t remember the last time you were up there, be sure to check them!
Porch and Patio Maintenance
Clean porches and patios make a great impression. Not only will you feel better about your home’s appeal, potential buyers will feel welcomed by it!
Have you checked your flower beds lately? Adding some new plants or even some simple weeding can go a long way.
Keep the ducts and vents clean all year long. This is especially crucial during the seasons it will be getting the most work.
Scrub Down the House
You want to make yourself and others say wow? A little bit of elbow grease can go a long way. Take to the appliances and countertops. Then, if you’re feeling ambitious, hit the walls and carpets.
Of course, you’re familiar with cleaning the interior of your windows, but how often do you take to the exterior? Give your windows that extra shine by sprucing them up from the outside in!
